Oct 5, 2009

We arrived in Quartzsite Az on Sept 19th. It was blazing hot for about 10 days well over 100 degrees. The high was 112 degrees. I melted, complained but survived somehow. It's now in the low 90's and feels comfortable believe it or not.

I went to Algodonez, Mexico and picked up some new glasses. For $125 I got new frames, bifocals, progressive, eye exam and they were ready in less than 2 hours.
I had to have a shrimp taco also. They are soooo good. They fix them in a warmed corn tortilla, battered fried shrimp inside with pico de gallo, raw shredded cabbage, lime juice and sour cream. They are to die for. I do have to go back and get my frames adjusted soon.

Today is chore day. We got propane, a load of wood (going back for a 2nd one), doing laundry, checking the internet for messages and get stuff done on line. It will at least take up a few hours.

People are starting to trickle into Quartzsite. When we first got here (the heat probably kept them away), the streets were bare. Now the stop lights are working overtime.
Till I write again, can't wait to see all my old friends and the new ones I haven' met yet!
